I’m a UK psychotherapist and researcher working exclusively with clients struggling with overeating issues. I’m part of a small team of dedicated, hard-working therapists and counsellors at a busy eating disorders charity, and I also work in private practice.
After decades of overeating and bingeing, failing diets, weight loss and weight gain, I have managed to normalise my eating and now enjoy a peaceful relationship with food.
My aim is to help others to do the same.
I use the term “emotion-driven overeating” to encompass the overeating spectrum that includes emotional eating, compulsive eating and binge eating disorder. I wanted something that attempts to convey the urge to eat that only people with these kinds of issues can truly understand.
I originally started this blog as a resource for clients but I’m really happy that what I write seems to strike a chord with people all over the world. I’m incredibly grateful to everyone who reads, likes and comments on my posts – your stories touch me more than you will ever know. Thank you.
